The Division of Innovative Learning and Academic Support was created to meet the varied needs of our teachers and our learners. Bringing together the units that focus on improving our teaching and learning efforts and the programs that provide innovative options allows us to develop new approaches and to respond to the needs of all our learners.

New students first encounter the learner-centered environment of Baton Rouge Community College in the Testing Center. The Compass test gives our academic advisors relevant information that allows the College to place students on the most appropriate academic path. The Academic Learning Center provides extensive services to our learners while partnering with our faculty to increase retention, transfer, and completion. Closing the loop on student success, the Teaching and Learning Center partners with the ALC to provide innovative, research-based faculty development solutions for our faculty.

The evolution of education continues as BRCC strives to meet students where they are by providing learning opportunities in many different models. The Innovative Learning programs provide alternative course offerings via online or evening and weekend face-to-face classes. In addition, students may be able to earn credit using our prior learning assessment policy or college level examination program.

The possibilities are endless as BRCC works to meet the needs of all learners. The Dean’s office is located in 308 Magnolia Building. We encourage you to explore the individual webpages listed to the left for more information about each initiative.
